puboflyons (2538) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 5, 2013
From the 330 ml. bottle marked C-CI-CABF-3.28-18:20. The pour is chestnut amber with reddish hues, decent carbonation leading up to a quick lasting off white head. Belgian sugar, yeast, bready malts, dark fruit, and a vague earthy hop note speckle the aroma. Medium to full body and smooth. Very sweet flavor but alcohol well-integrated. No real bitterness. Drinkable.

Lambister (317) - FINLAND - DEC 11, 2013
Large 0,75 l bottle from Tallinn. Pours a clear beutifully amber color with a long lasting small off-white head. It has a sweetish malty and spicy aroma with hints of syrup. Sweetish syrupy and malty spicy flavor with alcohol through the tasting. Finishes of with sweet long taste. First felt horrible but after some air totally different.

A fairly average Belgian ale. Sweet caramel malts, bread, some fruit notes. Apple in the aroma. Not very memorable.

DandyWolfFloyd (641) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Aroma - Belgian yeast, some dark sugary alcohol, and dark fruits Apperance - coppery brown body; liquid hazy; white head about 1/8" inch that settles into a foam (was not served in a Pauwel Kwak yard) Taste - nice and fig-like, there is that familiar Belgian yeast quality as well Palate - body is medium; texture is somewhat slick; the carbonation lively; the finish a little alcohol in the tongue

gallaghermurph (35) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Pours a dark apple cider with an eggshell off white creamy head that lingers. Aroma is fairly light, bread, yeast and banana. Mouthfeel is pleasantly lighter than I expected, with small but lively carbonation. Taste is on the sweeter side: sweet rolls, apple, banana with a slight honey undertone. Aftertaste is very light and pleasantly sweet. Very high drink ability here.

Marsipan och typiska belgiska toner. Bärnstensfärgad/red amber färg. Lätt skumkeona. På Black Lion får man den i världens tuffaste glass

chestnut, bright amber in colour, no CO2 visible and clear liquid with a light yeast hazyness with a toast coloured head. Noses of malt, toast, leather, touches of liquorice, acacia honey with light wine and read berry aromas. Lightly lively, honey sweetness, lightly smokey malty an velvety with a full but somewhat slender body and a long lasting lightly dry finish.
